School Questions: What Needs to be Decided Regarding Custody

school questionsYou might have school questions if you are going through custody but need to make important decisions regarding your child. We want to help answer your questions regarding school so that you can make the best choices moving forward.

School FAQ 

If I’m the custodial parent, can I choose my child’s school? If you share joint legal custody with your ex, you will both need to sit down and decide where you want your child to go to school. If you can’t agree, you might have to return to court on these matters. If you have sole legal custody, then only you need to make that decision.

Can my child attend school online? If you are permitted to make this decision and the school fulfills your state’s requirements for education, then you should be permitted to make this decision for your child. 

If my child attends school in my ex’s district, will this continue? Let’s say that your child goes to preschool in your ex’s school district and lives with him or her most of the time. When the child starts Kindergarten, the child is more likely to attend school in the same district. The court usually likes to stick to the same routine if it works for everybody involved. This is something you want to bring up to your attorney. 

What if we can’t agree on where our child goes to school? The court will help you decide, but you always want to speak to your ex first because it helps to figure out these issues together.

 Is my ex allowed to pick the children up from school? If you have sole custody, then there is a good chance that your ex is not permitted to pick your child up from school. You should have this information listed with the school so that they know what they should and shouldn’t do for your child’s safety.

Beyond impressed! I had been self represented through years of family law and child support court hearings and was so hesitant to hire an attorney out of fear and trusting that they would appropriately represent myself and child. After tons of research I contacted Ms. Azizi. I immediately was greeted by Lorenzo, the Office Administrator, who made me feel so welcomed and comfortable. He assisted in making communication seamless and effortless and walked me through each step of the process. Ms. Azizi heard my concerns and was extremely sensitive to the matter of FAMILY. The team did an amazing job with discovery and building a strong case that gave me confidence and I was successful in coming to an agreement with the other party, in what has yet to have been the easiest hearing of all, thanks to them. Ms. Azizi settled my case after years of stress and agony. I am grateful for finding the team and Ms. Azizi and definitely recommend them for any of your legal needs!

This law firm is the best! They have helped me so much with my Divorce and Criminal cases and I really wouldn't know what to do if I didn't have them to represent me. Lorenzo and Ro are awesome and are there to help at all times. My attorney was Mr.Edmondson and he has been amazing. This law firm is truly great and I will never go to any other one. Their responses are quick and will answer any questions you might have.

Seven stars. I had planned to put up my reviews after my final judgment but after the first hearing, couldn't wait, and I would write this whatever the outcome of my difficult case. Soheila was simply amazing in her arguments and strategy before the judge. I felt so taken care of. I chose her for her near-30 years of experience as an attorney, the depth and strength I observed in one who had weathered hardship through her many accomplishments, her compassion, and her smarts. I can't imagine what other attorney would have Zoomed with me even in sickness to help prepare me for a legal session. And I later saw how keen she'd been in her advice. I've been deeply touched watching Soheila and her paralegal Lynda Walker fight for my child as if he were their own. They in particular have treated me with great humanity - day and night from what I experienced at my former attorney's. Lynda is a gem, on her toes, flexible, hard-working, committed to each client, humble, and sweet. She has slaved over my case, doing much of the writing, watchful of me on paper and in person, guiding me gently while encouraging me to use my voice. The staff, including the office administrator Lorenzo and Linda C, is caring, respectful, and conscientious. A band of angels.
